IT WAS OUR PRIVILEGE AND PLEASURE TO KNOW NAOMIE AND DOUG.

DEEPEST SYMPATHY,
JUDY & R.V. STUCKEY

I knew Doug and Naomi as a friend of Betsy Freitag. I remember how kind and loving and considerate Doug and Naomi were with each other. And this seemed to extend to whoever else they happened to be with. They were so supportive of Betsy as an old friend whose common memories they remembered and treasured.
They had this wonderful habit of Sunday evenings at Anthony's at Shilshole, enjoying a glass of wine and talking and laughing.

DON AND I MET NAOMI AND DOUG WHEN REID AND MELINDA POWERS WITH 2 YOUNG SONS MOVED NEXT DOOR. MELINDA IS DON'S DAUGHTER. WHEN DOUG AND WE RETIRED, A GROUP OF 6 WAS FORMED, "THE BEACH BUNCH". DOUG WOUD RENT A VAN, AND HE, NAOMI, MARGARET POWERS, BETSY, AND DON AND I WOULD TAKE 3-DAY TRIPS TO PLACES LIKE CANNON BEACH, KALALOCH, AND THE LONG BEACH PENINSULA AT THE MOUTH OF COLUMBIA RIVER. WE VISITED IN EACH OTHERS HOMES; TOOK THE TRAIN FROM EDMONDS TO VANCOUVER, B.C. TO SEE...


Within Doug's long life, our memories of him fit into his Naples Boeing assignment in 1979-80. Our family was younger than his and Naomie's, so we heard lots of joyful news of their children emerging into careers and their grandchildren being born. Doug's warmth and inclusiveness and fun-loving spirit impressed us, and always made us feel welcome.
We are currently out of town and unfortunately unable to attend his celebration memorial.

Sincerely, Al and Barbara Umphenour

I knew Naomie in Phrateres Alumnae Group and met your handsome father several times at various gatherings of our group.

Our group is smaller now, but we still remember Naomie and miss her at our luncheons.People like your folks are hard to replace.

May your parents rest in peace.

Such a privilege to have known this fine man for most of my life, first as the perfect next door neighbor dad in Eastgate, and continuing as the always interesting dad of my best friend, Chris. We always knew we got very lucky in the parent realm, and Doug exemplifies that.

To a man I truly loved and admired. He maintained all the wonderful traits instilled in him as a member of our "Greatest Generation." A true inspiration and proud member of the B-29, the "Draggin Lady" he now has another set of wings. Keep them flying Doug and I will never forget you. Rich Cookson.

I would like to extend my sympathies to Doug's family on his passing. I am the son of Doug's B-29 aircraft commander on Saipan, Capt Richard A Field, and am very thankful I was able to speak with Doug in the recent past and gain his insights on my father and their wartime experience together as very young men.
